NFL Playoffs DFS Picks - Conference Championships Daily Divide

Daily Divide: Championship Weekend DFS Two game slates are tough! To win a tourney you have to almost be perfect with every randomly fantastic play in your lineup.

Week 17 Daily Divide DFS Picks: Julio Jones, Devonta Freeman, Odell Beckham Jr.

Daily Divide: Week 17 DFS Week 17 can be an odd place full of unknowns and DFS landmines. So full of oddities and quirks, Vegas hasn’t even set lines for every game yet.

Julian Edelman (WR, NE) - Week 5 Lineup Booms

With 30 receptions through three games and a near 80% snap share, Julian Edelman is the epitome of a high floor player, very involved in his team’s offense. His lowest target total came in Week Three, and he was targeted the 15th most of any player that weekend. His fantasy finish was as WR21 that... Read More

Jamaal Charles (RB, KC) - Week 5 Lineup Booms

I love writing about players who are matching up against the Bears, mostly because they are a bad defense. The Bears are middle-of-the-road in regards to fantasy points against running backs, giving up the 13th most fantasy points so far this season. However, they have surrendered the second most fantasy points to quarterbacks, and how... Read More

Larry Fitzgerald (WR, ARI) - Week 5 Lineup Booms

Larry Fitzgerald’s DFS price has yet to make any sense so far this season, and it continues this weekend. Fitzgerald is the WR2 overall through the first four weeks of the season, yet is being priced around the WR10-12 range across sites. The Cardinals have a solid projected team total of 24 and they are... Read More

Gary Barnidge (TE, CLE) - Week 5 Lineup Booms?

Gary Barnidge is one of the hottest tight ends in football. No, you aren't dreaming, you're actually reading that. On an offense devoid of weapons at the wide receiver position, Barnidge has five or more targets in each of the first four games. Despite currently being the TE9 through four weeks, including back to back... Read More

Danny Woodhead (RB, SD) - Week 5 Lineup Booms

Even in half PPR formats, Danny Woodhead is averaging RB1 numbers on the season, with weekly finishes as follows: RB5, RB11, RB41, RB14. There is the one bad week in there, but his overall usage and performance indicate a floor and upside. It’s improbable that Danny Woodhead will have any 30+ fantasy point outings this... Read More

Is It Time To Cut Bait On These Three Players?

Andre Johnson – WR, IND FootballOutsiders has DVOA (defense adjusted value over average) and DYAR (defense adjusted yards above replacement) grades for 74 WRs to date. They have Johnson graded as the 74th receiver in both DVOA & DYAR.  His 7-51-0 line through three weeks looks as unimpressive on paper as Johnson looked earning it. With... Read More

Matt Forte (RB, CHI) - Week 4 Lineup Booms

I jostled back and forth throughout the week on whether to go with Matt Forte or Latavius Murray here as I like both backs in this game. With so many of the top running backs with injury/usage concerns, Forte is my favorite high-end running back this week. Jimmy Clausen is his quarterback and the Bears... Read More

Roddy White (WR, ATL) - Players Showing Warning Signals

After putting up a 4-84 line on eight targets in Week One, Roddy White has disappeared entirely, garnering zero targets since. I glanced around at a few metrics on a few sites and no one seems overly down on Roddy White’s performance, so I can’t fully explain this. I have a friend that used to... Read More

Will Tyrod Taylor Keep Up His Top Ten Rank in 2015?

In his first game as starting quarterback for the Buffalo Bills, Tyrod Taylor finished as QB13 in fantasy. He finished as a top five fantasy QB in Weeks Two and Three. Cumulatively, Taylor is currently fantasy’s QB5. The former sixth round wide receiver convert has a 98th percentile SPARQ score has sparked the interest of many... Read More

Is Joseph Randle a Top Ten Running Back?

After a lukewarm start to the season, Joseph Randle put up an exciting 28 plus fantasy points in his last outing, doubling his fantasy points from the first two weeks combined. Three weeks into the season and sitting in the top five of fantasy RB scoring, it may be time to take our first look... Read More

Marshawn Lynch active versus the Bears

After some late-week injury-report theatrics, Marshawn Lynch is reported as active versus the Bears in Week 3. The only concern for Lynch owners is that Seattle might run up the score so much, so quickly, that Seattle may choose to rest Lynch a bit. Through two weeks, however, the big back has played nearly 80% of... Read More

Eddie Lacy and Davante Adams Upgraded to Probable   

With some nice depth on the team, the Green Bay Packers may have been served well by backup RB James Starks and WR Ty Montgomery. In some very positive news for the Packers, however, both RB Eddie Lacy and WR Davante Adams have been upgraded from questionable to probable, after some concern and hand-wringing throughout the week....

Tight End ADP Winners and Losers: 2019 Season Review

I've always believed that it is easier to lose a fantasy championship than to win it on draft day. It makes sense, as sure-fire players are expected to reward their owners with a lower risk-factor than the other way around and thus they're always drafter earlier. If they put up a season-long dud, though, you'll... Read More

Biggest Busts of 2019: Quarterback

The 2019 NFL season is over, and it's time to look back on what happened. 2019 was a year where some quarterbacks -- Lamar Jackson, Josh Allen -- leaped up to the top of the fantasy charts, while other guys faded from where they were expected to perform. Today, I want to talk about three... Read More

Biggest Busts of 2019: Wide Receivers

After a very interesting season of fantasy football action, many owners were left with a bitter taste in their mouth from a few of the “elite” NFL wide receivers.
